you for visiting my Teddy Bear website.
My name is Jane,
I made my first bear
in 1997 and after many attempts and some funny mistakes,
my creations started to resemble teddy bears and not just stuffed piles of
fur bits sewn together, with eyes attached.
I started with a commercially bought pattern and practiced my
sewing skills until I felt confident enough to sew and sculpture
a properly made mohair teddy bear. I found many different bear patterns
from a variety of sources and experimented with different shapes
and sizes. I have always been interested in sewing and stitching
but never dreamt that making Teddy Bears would be so enjoyable.
Now, the Teddy Bears are slowly growing in number and are gradually taking
over the house. Thank heaven for an understanding family!!
Since discovering the internet and the many Teddy Bear sites
out there, I have, with interest, been watching and learning
from other like minded people. I would, at this point like to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU AND HUGS to all who have helped and
given advice to me over the years.
Please feel free to send us any comments
or thoughts you have, the bruins and I really enjoy reading them,
and will answer at every opportunity.
